The seas be ours

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is coming to theatres in May this year and I cannot be more excited. I absolutely adore the PotC movies as they always have intruiging stories and manage to execute the the pirate theme so well. Plus, Orlando Bloom may or may not just be one of my biggest celebrity crushes. In all seriousness, I am actually quite a fan of the pirate fantasy genre, believe it or not. I have always had a great fascination with the ocean and its mysteries. I remember pretending to be a mermaid in the bathtub when I was a little girl, though I am sure I wasn’t the only one who lived that fantasy.

For those who still secretly long live this fantasy, I highly recommend visiting The Cove. The Cove is a store founded by Kol Tchailenov. Kol creates high quality mer-chandise, for all of the aspiring mermaids and mermen of Second Life. She recently released this new tail and island at The Secret Affair. Something great about Kol’s tails is that they come with instructive images for mesh body alphas as well as appliers for a seamless look. The Cove caters to Maitreya, Slink and system bodies, please be mindful of that and make sure to pick up a demo prior to making purchases.

The King and his men
stole the queen from her bed,
and bound her in her bones.
The seas be ours, and by the powers;
where we will, we’ll roam.

Violent seduction

Violent Seduction is one of my favorite stores in Second Life, and I am incredibly happy and grateful to have become a part of their official blogger team. Iki Akiri, the founder and owner of the store, always creates fantastically detailed and wonderfully designed original mesh pieces. Her latest release was this victorian-esque corset romper, which you can find at the current round of Kustom9. I adore all the details on this romper, from the branches with rose, which are colour customizable, to the beautiful laces and ruffles.

I combined the romper with a pair of stockings from Aii The Ugly & Beautiful at The Kawaii Project. I always love combining short pieces, such as miniskirts or in this case, a romper, with high boots or stockings. What I especially love about these stockings, are the big bows on the back. The bows instantly make the stockings, besides incredible sexy, very adorable. The stockings do come in combination with a pair of shoes and can not be worn separately, please be mindful of that and make sure to pick up a demo prior to your purchase.

I enjoyed creating this picture, despite it being slightly different from my regular photo style. I find it quite important, and also a lot of fun, to experiment with different styles and editing methods. I consider my blog “an everlasting project of self-growth“, and all of these photo’s as little adventures within this project. I’m looking forward to glancing over my Memories of 2017-album at the end of the year to see all the different journeys I have been on, and how much my “project” has evolved throughout the year.

After almost a month of insane excitement and intense projects, I finally had the time to get together with some of my beloved friends and practice what we love most: photography; usually with a lot of banter and memory making included. I am happy to present my first collaboration of March, featuring the incredibly lovely Cyanna Starsmith. This first collaboration is actually primarily focused around the biggest collaboration of the entirety of Second Life, Collabor88. Continue reading
